A journey into the city of theatres, bars and hotel rooms where Dorothy Parker sharpened her wit, polished her writing and captured the edgy mood of her times. Richly illustrated with the art and design of this period, this title captures the New York that inspired Mrs. Parker, a city that would later take inspiration from the formidable lady herself.
